[♪breaking news theme] >> stephanie: you gave us breaking news, twitter wins democratic nomination, you refer to cory booker, well-known tweeter. >> it is the first time that a social network has been elected to office. and hopefully it doesn't do a lot of rt, retweeting. but cory booker next senator from the great state of new jersey, and extremely low turnout, which was precisely what chris christie wanted. he didn't want to have to worry about the extra democrats turni
. bill: he says he's going to iowa because it's hot in texas this time of year. martha: the feds say he gave chemotherapy who patient who did not need it and he diagnosed people with canter who didn't have it. this doctor is facing serious jail time. bill: the emotional court appearance for a pop star who fights for custody of his son, a son who almost drown in the backyard family pool last week. >> he's in the pool. >> does he have any injuries. the postal service is critical to our economy. delivering mail, medicine and packages, yet they're closing thousands of offices, slashing service and want to layoff over 100,000 workers. the postal service is recording financial losses, but not for reasons you might think. the problem? a burden no other agency or company bears. a 2006 law that drains $5 billion a year from post office revenue while the postal service is forced to overpay billions more into federal accounts. congress created this problem, and congress can fix it. a quarter million tweeters is beare tweeting. and 900 million dollars are changing hands online. that's why hp built
a slizz to $85 a visit. hesselling a pig in a poke. >> joining us from alan,texas, democrats line, good morning. caller: good morning. i'm kind of -- i'm a bit frustrated with many of the callers. i believe that we are divided much in due to the fact that many of the public or the pollists are being confused with the changing facts that the quickly-changing facts associated with the economies like the impact of the repeal of glass speegal, the tech in a logical transitions and globalization, all of this is happening so quickly and there's been such an emphasis on reading and math and science that a lot of people are being lost with their civics and economics situation, so it's difficult enough to understand what's going on and how laws are written but then when you add things like there's no pure democracy, anybody who drives on a public road is not a socialist if it's a socialist program or uses the fire department but now we have news or profit, prisons for profit. there's no more regulation on medications and fuel because of these repeals, so it's becoming more and more difficult for
's been doing has been pioneered in states like texas and southern states. i expect they'll criticize him anyway because of the politics of opportunityism. them problem goes back more than 40 years. nixon's war on drugs is as big a failure as his war in vietnam was. we've had an 800% increase in the number of people in jails while the country's population has gone up a little more than 200%. we have way too many people in jail, more per capita than any other country in the world. i think what the attorney general has done here is a very significant reform, and i think it's larger meaning is we're going to see the president blocked by congress in so many ways use executive action to make a lot of important changes. >> okay. nia-malika, a lot of law and orderno nouews today. in iowa, we got hear wisdom from the father of senator ted cruz. take a listen to him. >> socially some requires that government becomes your god. that's why they have to destroy the concept of god. they have to destroy all loyalties except loyalty to the government. that's what was -- is behind homosexual marriage. >>
of attention lately, that is wendy davis in texas. >> yes. >> bill: what is she going to run for? >> she has said she's either going to run for re-election in her state senate seat, and keep in behind texas is so jerr gerrymandering post redistricting. wendy davis holds one of the only swing seats. there are two swing seats in all of texas, and she holds one of them. she's re-elected to a swing seat in a red state, that would be fabulous. she's going to run for re-election there or run for governor. the way she has energized the country is phenomenal. i got to see her speech in d.c. last week, and her personal story is just so compelling. young single mother, put herself through school. made it to harvard law. made it to elected office. this is a woman whose mother has a sixth grade education. she's very much in line for governor seat in texas. so i think she can speak to texans in a way that the republican party simply can't right now. there is so much enthusiasm around her. i want her to make the best decision for her. she's young. she has a bright future. she can done whatever she wants w
, and his wife. judgment day -- you knew better. next is dave joining us from crockett, texas, good morning. caller: hello? yes, i would like to make a comment. you know, before time was ever recorded over in the middle east, then people have been fighting each other for years, thousands of years. and for the united states to think that they're going to send aid and change their way of living is complete idiocy. this government -- we have got so much wrong with our own country. ok, thank you for the call. from inside "usa today," in anticipation of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the march on washington, which will take place on august 28, the mlk memorial repair will not be finished, although work on fixing the quote does not an exact quote from dr. king will continue after the august 20 anniversary, and we will have life coverage from the ceremonies the weekend prior. and president obama, who is scheduled to deliver remarks on wednesday morning, august 28, to commemorate dr. king's remarks 50 years ago. clinical story from -- a ,"litical story from "politico hillary clinton is fielding o
boehner. >> former texas congressman rand atl was the keynote speaker the young americans for liberty national convention. we will show you his remarks in their entirety tomorrow here on c-span. in the meantime, here's a preview of the former congressmen's remarks. and --biggest break -- the risk is how sluggish will they get. speaking out can be dangerous. we write laws on purpose. all of politicians want truth. they want us to know everything about government so they write to be strict laws. if you are a whistleblower, we will protect you. yeah, sure. you do that and they charge you with treason. know, theds me of you with an empire of life. the empire, the big government is only held together by lies. these revolutions whether bradley manning or snowden, they have not heard us area they have hurt the bureaucrat. that hurt a politician. they embarrass them. you may we spy on every country in the world? we spy on them? isy probably suspected, but out in the open. they are embarrassed. treasonous to maintaining the faÇade they are wonderful and good and humanitarian. away frankly, th
we should be in the mid-80s with lowering humidity. the heat is still on in texas but we're seeing improvements. we're no longer in the triple digits. we're at 98 to 99 degrees in texas. 87 to 88 in washington, d.c. >> just extraordinary pictures. thank you so much. >>> president obama is on his way to martha's vineyard. let's listen to his message of inspiration to those severely injured in combat. >> maybe you lost your sight but you can still see the truth that our disabled veterans make extraordinary contributions to our country every single day. maybe you lost an arm but you still have the strength to pick up a friend or neighbor in need. maybe you lost a leg but you still stand tall for the values and freedoms that make america the greatest nation on earth. >> white house correspondent kristen welker is on martha's vineyard. that was one of the most poignant points right there. i got all choked up. what are take aways? >> reporter: he have hoping to drive the narrative before he leave for vacation. today he map out ways in which his administration can do a better job of servi
average in texas. >> what you're bringing us here in new york, thank you very much. >> it's great. >>> it's back to business today for the u.s. state department. all but one of the 19 embassies and consulates closed last weekend have reopened. still closed is the embassy in yemen and lahore, pakistan, remains closed due to a threat. is this an essentially all clear? how are you interpreting it? >> well, to some extent u.s. officials feel with confidence that they can allow some of the embassies or all of the embassies that have closed as a result of that to reopen. that's the case here in cairo. there's no doubt that security will remain high in these fa till si sill teas. they had actually reduced their staff because of the current unrest here in egypt. so really they are opened for business, as we understand it. things are back to normal. they are still operating at the staffing levels that actually preceded that al quiaeda threat. some staff had already left. there's no doubt they are going to remain a vigilant watch on many of these embassies in wake of the al qaeda threat that emerge
. the former presidential candidate and texas congressman will launch his own online news channel called, you guessed it, the ron paul channel. programming set to go live tomorrow. and you can subscribe for $9.95 a month. we're getting a rare glimpse of the president golfing today during his vacation on martha's vineyard. he was playing with three advisers. the president seemed to miss most of his early putts, as captured here. his first putt was a miss, which the president reacted to by leaning back and kicking his knee up as if trying to coax the ball into breaking right. it did not work. >>> and a new study released by george mason university finds democrats are now the butt of most of the jokes on late-night television. that marks a sea of change from 2012, when republican mitt romney led the republicans to that title. since january, president obama has been the target of 288 monologue jokes, the next most joked-about individual, here he is, anthony weiner, new york city mayoral candidate at 120. here's a few from just this week. >> the movie's called too much johnson. when he heard that,
, and that's already happening in states like texas and south carolina, but the frustration is only going to build if the american people don't get a voice in this process. >> but do you -- do you actually know of any members of congress right now, house or senate, who have said, yes, i'm going to have a town hall, i'm going to speak to my constituents during this five-week period, i'm going to do face-to-face? >> absolutely. they are posted on our website. mike lee in utah is hosting a whole series of them, and i find it interesting. the folks that so far have agreed to hold town halls, have agreed to make them public, have agreed to let everybody show up and express their opinion are the folks that are standing by principle and comfortable with the positions that they ran on, the positions they are voting on today and what they are doing to represent their constituents. >> you know, a lot of them say that the reason that they want this five-week recess is so that they can reach out to their constituents which isn't a bad idea. i think they should do their work back here in washington an
open which is very important. >> good friend of senator harken there of course. the texas senator ted cruz, this was his second trip to iowa in a month. he's scheduled to return again in the fall. he's going to be speaking at the iowa republican party's fall fund-raising dinner. is he tipping his hat to real political ambitions or just sort of raising his name recognition and bringing in more dollars? >> it's probably both. as i mentioned for joe biden, getting your na inting your nam spotlight, ted cruz has been doing that and more. he's going to go to new hampshire. he is all over the place. but i will repeat, again, it is very, very early. at this point in the 2008 cycle. august of 2005, hillary clinton was the clear front-runner. you had george al len was the co-front-runner on the republican side. so it is very early with still more than three years to go, peter. >> i want to get a sense, do you think it's very early with -- just kidding. let me ask you about -- acknowledging iing it's early, with me here. he made some headlines speaking out basically, you know, sort of attacking
within hours, texas, north carolina immediately moved to restrict the right to vote. no shame about it. i think it is to the shame of the supreme court's conservative majority. it is to the shame of these governors in these states that the 50 years on as we're about to celebrate the anniversary of this march which was the fundamental right to vote for americans for the american people which isn't in the constitution and should be. 50 years on to strip that away is shameful. it is to the everlasting shame of that court. >> final word to you, mr. agnew. shameful? is. >> absolutely. and just last week, in response to that, the dream defenders announced our intentions to register 61,0005850 voters here in florida, the lgbtq, the black is, the brown, the poor around the state. we'll meet them whenever they are. what would be more shameful is if we didn't make sure that governors like the one we have, politicians like the ones we have on both sides of the aisle aren't held accountable for either supporting this or standing aside while our voting rights and our basic rights as citizens are being
name here, she took a stand on abortion down in texas. while, on the one hand, it is about hillary, it's about building a bench of women who can take the national stage later on. >> kasi hunt, thank you for being with us. >>> breaking news out of paris. officials have evacuated an closed the eiffel tower over what a spokesperson says was security reasons. just a note of caution here. t tower threats but only have evacuations a few times a year. we will keep you posted as we get most information. the tower is closed says the spokesperson and don't know when it will be open at the present time. >>> kidd rock's decision to slash prices to his concert is paying off. the entire music industry is taking notice. mandy drury is here with what is moving your money. concert tickets can get ridiculous for big acts but kidd rock is seeing big dividends by offering 20 dollars. >> every seat for his show is $20! he is declaring himself a music business revolution. not only is the ticket $20, beers are 4 bucks and thanks to these cheap tickets, i believe in mow markets his show's attendance is up sub
to speak in iowa next month. texas senator ted cruz and rick sanatorium and danald trump hit up the iowa state fair this weekend. boy, oh, boy, joining us is mr. chris stalwart. what dow make of all of this. >> you make it sound like it is my fault. i didn't do. this i am not making them run for office. this is the world we live in today. you want to run for the highest office in the land, it never ends and never stops and the permanent campaign is an understatement and if you want to lock up the base and make inrods in a state like iowa where people expect to meet you a couple of times, you have to pay off in sweat equity now. nationally one can care a less. who knows what will change. a lot can go under the bridge. but the retail poll tigs in iowa is extremely important. >> for hillary clinton, what she's trying to do. she will be where eric holder is today and talking about civil right issues part of the effort to solidify african-american in the democratic base and move past that and will probably hit a refrain that heard from her a lot. it was history making to have the first africa
in manhattan, this has bipartisan support. states like arkansas and texas have already imposed their own policies to lower prisoners. >> thank you. >>> and president obama is taking a break from washington this week. he's spending time with his family on martha's vineyard, but va t the vacation comes as the economy nosedives. >> the president has done so less than his pred sez or george w. bush. 14 trips and 19 days. one kmon thread mr. obama's beginning to experience some second term blues. the president stepped onto the island paradise confronting some of the diceiest poll numbers of his presidency. it's only one poll but gallop constantly tracks presidential approval. mr. obama's is at 42% with 50% of the country disapproving. his approval rating was 41% last week, a low not seen since december of 201. when the president's approval rating dips this low, it's usually due to defections among democrats. surveillance have unsettled the president's place. republicans accuse him of ducking the issue for weeks. >> when the story initially broke, the president went un
and unscripted pose. he was caught on camera in a dallas, texas, classroom. that's the phenomenon that became as dufnering. his pga tour buddies, and i use that term loosely, taking full advantage by tweeting and retweeting pictures of the unfortunate post. i'm wondering, are we now going to be seeing a whole lot more of this dufnering? >> maybe. i don't know. i have only done it -- that's the only time i have done it. actually i did it once with lindsey vonn because she asked me, but, you know, they caught me in a moment of relaxation i guess and then the guys all out here tried to give me a good ribbing on it and get me in trouble and all this stuff. but i kind of ran with it and it turned out to be a good thing and a lot of people have taken to it so maybe i will give them a special treat later this week when i get home with the trophy. >> reporter: come on, jason, give us some more dufnering. we love it. this is a player that rarely smiles, but at 36 years of age, he really needs to. most players have majors in the bag by this point if they're going to go on and actually win a major. he's
. >> the western district of texas in february the public defender's office faced a 9% pay cut. in march the office was notified it had to cut an additional 14%. the result? case delays, layoffs for a third of the defenders and a 10% salary reduction on top. meanwhile, the number of cases isn't letting up. it's projected to top 13,000 this year. >> and you see sort of multiple layers of injustice, where people are funneled into a system because they don't have economic opportunities. then once they're in the system they don't have adequate defense because there is insufficient spending for the public defenders that would provide them with adequate defense in that system. >> reporter: the real impact on the ground isn't shared either. it's black defendants who overwhelmingly are denied the equal representation they're required to receive under law. black defendants comprise just 19% of clients who can afford to hire their own if sequester is the new normal this new imbalance could ultimately prove unconstitutional. >> joshua du bois, former head of the white house office, author of a recent "newswee
, like the governor of texas, is a ponzi scheme. >> i'm advocating fort end of obamacare as we know t. it's already destroying jobs in this country. already going to take away 100,000 new jersey residents health insurance. that report came out yesterday. cory booker says obamacare is great. he doesn't think it's good, he thinks it's great. cory booker is too liberal for new jersey. that's the real story. because win in new jersey reignites the entire republican party and sets the agenda fort republican takeover in 2014 of the senate. >> steve: the dnc said about national republicans, quote, they did this autopsy five months ago and this is what they have? look at the races we've seen since. mark sanford, gomez and now steve. they clearly haven't learned from their mistake. it's distinction without a difference. the end result is they have these far right candidates who are going to cost them an election. >> far right candidates. i grew up in ridgefield park. my dad was a korean war vet. when my dad died, i was raised by my italian immigrant grandparents. i've been married 32 years. both d
